This post is dedicated to Daniela who called yesterday and mentioned that designing shoes in Rome for a month is the latest on her to-do list. Not being much of a shoe person myself, I foolishly questioned why that would be cool. I get it now. Though judging from this list, The Netherlands might be the place to go.

From top to bottom, left to right: Czech designer Pavlina Miklasova draws inspiration from wooden models of the Hellenic History Museum of Athens.

Dutch designer Leanie van der Vyvers Scary Beautiful forces a new way of walking, leaning forward while refining a painfully fragile balance. See the walking video here.

French shoe designer Benoît Méléard designs for many designers but these crazy wooden platforms are from his collection.

Dutch designer Rosanne Begsma’s Pumptouw.

All of Dutch designer Marloes ten Bhömer’s collections are pretty radical. Beigefoldedshoe uses the tanned leather from the soles as the uppers too. Bottom photos are hers as well: Noheelshoe.

RISD alum Martha Davis designed the sculptural wooden sandals, second from bottom.

Oooh, and there’s also this 3D printed Macedonia Shoe designed by Finnish designer Janne Kyattenen. Wild.

    Hate speech should be taken off this site.
